This piece of the puzzle allows Jaspersoft Server to receive from Jaspersoft Studio and execute reports that have ElasticSearch as datasource.


Before compiling the server plugin you need to compile the Elasticsearch results parser and the Elasticsearch Jasper Datasource Adapter.

Clone those two projects and run in each of them:

mvn install

Once you are done you are ready to create the Elasticsearch Jasper Server adapter.

If it is the first time you compile this you need to launch firt the validate step - this will download the Jasper Server distribution and extract the libraries needed for compilation:

mvn validate

If you have already the proper version of the Jasper Server zip file you may drop it in the downloads directory of the project - you may need to create it. If the zip file is already there we won't download it from sourceforge.

You can now create the package you will need to configure the Jaspersoft Server:

mvn package

This will create a zip file - named es-server-ds*.zip - that you will need to copy to your server. If you get an error that looks like:

Could not resolve dependencies for project net.wedjaa.elasticsearch:es-server-ds:jar:2.2.0

it means you haven'd run mvn validate at least once before trying to compile or that the validate phase failed to download the Jasper Server package.


The easy installation - that works if your Jasper server has no major customizations - is to get the zip file created by the mvn package command - es-server-ds-2.2.0.zip for example - and take it to the Jasper Server machine. Once on the machine unzip the file:

unzip es-server-ds-2.2.0.zip

Enter the directory where the file was unzipped and run the installer:

cd es-server-ds-2.2.0
java -jar libs/es-server-ds-2.2.0.jar */path/to/jserver/installation*

Where /path/to/jserver/installation is the path to the Jasper Server installation in the application server; something like /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/jasperserver.

This will take care of configuring the server with the adapter, update the lucene libraries and register the query language.

Once this is done you can restart the Jasper Server and test the new ES Adapter.

Manual Installation

You can install the adapter by hand by following these steps

Before proceeding with the installation, make sure that you have a working installation of Jaspersoft Server: set it up, run it, try to run a couple of reports - check that it behaves correctly. If it stops working after installing this extension, at least you know what broke it.

JS_HOME indicates the path where the actual Jaspersoft Server has been installed. For example: if you deployed the server in a Tomcat application server that is installed in /opt/tomcat your JS_HOME is most probably going to be /opt/tomcat/webapps/jasperserver.

First of all stop the server. Then copy the adapter libraries you extracted from the zip file - in the libs/ path- under JS_HOME/WEB-INF/lib. Make sure you remove older versions of existing libraries - like the lucene ones.

Copy the application configuration: applicationContext-es-datasource.xml - in JS_HOME/WEB-INF and es_datasource.properties in JS_HOME/WEB-INF/bundles

It's not time to do some editing.

Register the query language in the REST points configuration. Open JS_HOME/WEB-INF/applicationContext-rest-services.xml and find this bit:

<util:list id="queryLanguagesCe">

and change it to:

<util:list id="queryLanguagesCe">

Then it's time to edit JS_HOME/WEB-INF/classes/jasperreports.properties - add, at the very top of the file:


Now you can restart the server and test some ElasticSearch based reports.
